ACLU Challenges Federal Government to Grant Jane Doe the Right to Access the Care She Needs

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is in court once more. However, this time taking the legal battle to Washington D.C to fight in place of a young woman who is being obstructed from accessing abortion services in Texas by the federal officials.

The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) has prevented, Jane Doe, a pregnant teen from accessing the necessary care she needs. ACLU took to the court earlier in the week to challenge the obstruction in the wake of yet another lawsuit against the ORR, having been previously challenged in a California court. The judge ruled that the federal government had no powers to bar the abortion, and ordered the case to be filed separately in another court.

Commenting on the case, Brigitte Amiri, Senior Staff Attorney with ACLU Reproductive Freedom Project said, “Federal officials have no mandate to prevent this young lady from getting the care she deserves.

We have filed a case in Washington, and we hope to put an end to this delay. She continued, “Jane Doe has portrayed bravery and persistence, yet the Trump administration intends to delay her abortion with the aim of forcing her to carry to term against her consent.” Read more: Village Voice Media | Wikipedia

Jane Doe is but an example of many immigrants suffering the hands of the federal government. The following are some instances of gross injustices experienced by many immigrants.

According to ACLU’s Motion for Preliminary Injunction, Scott Lloyd, ORR Director, coerced young [pregnant women to carry to term pregnancies against their will, instead of receiving abortion care, personally forcing them to seek health care in “crisis pregnancy centers with religious affiliations.

Furthermore, shelters caring for unaccompanied immigrant children are being ordered not to allow pregnant young women from obtaining a judicial bypass to abortions or granting them the right to an attorney. In one case, a young woman was rushed to the ER after consuming abortion pills to prevent her from aborting.

About Lacey and Larkin Fontera Foundation

Renowned media personalities, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin, have dedicated the financial proceeds from the arrest of Sheriff Joe Arpaio to finance organizations in Arizona that fight for migrant rights.

The co-founders of Phoenix New Times and Village Voice Media were arrested on 18 October 2007 by the Sheriff of Maricopa County, Joe Arpaio. They were apprehended in the middle of the night and jailed, having exposed secret jury proceedings that sought reporters’ notes covering the tracks of the Sheriff.

The $ 3.75 million granted by the judge comes after the revelation of jury subpoenas that demanded the names of all individuals who read online stories by the New Times regarding the lawman.

Lacey and Larkin have dedicated their careers trying to defend their First Amendment Right, successfully filed a lawsuit against the Sheriff and emerged victorious for the ninth time in a row.

The Lacey and Larkin Foundation funds organizations in Arizona that advocate for civil, human and migrant rights and freedom, including freedom of speech and freedom to partake in civic activities within Arizona and along the “la linea fronteriza” – the U.S/ Mexico border.

Cancer Centers of America Join Team “Fight against Prostate Cancer”

The diagnostic statistics regarding prostate cancer are staggering. One in every seven men will face this disease during his lifetime and the number jumps to one in five for African-American males.

Early detection and treatment are crucial, especially for men with a family history of this condition and those of African-American descent. Both groups are advised to begin screening at age 40 and have regular checkups. However, many are uninformed and those who are aware of the risks sometimes delay in getting screened.

In honor of Prostate Cancer Awareness Month in September, the National Football League Alumni Association and LabCorp are joining forces with Cancer Centers of America to provide free and discounted PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) screenings beginning on September 1 and going through October 15. One of the first signs of being at risk of prostate cancer is elevated PSA levels. However, an elevated PSA level is not a cancer diagnosis, but it is an indicator that a thorough check-up by a medical professional is in order.

Through this program, 2,000 men over the age of 40 who fulfill the criteria will receive a free PSA screening at one of LabCorp’s 1,750 locations in the US and subsequently, others who qualify will receive a discounted screening for $25 through the end of the registration period. Those interested in signing up can visit Prostate Pep Talk to sign up through October 15.

An August 30 press conference in New Jersey will kick-off the initiative with speakers from the NFL, and members of Cancer Centers of America and LabCorp will also be present. Other related events will be held in cities around the country including Atlanta, Chicago, Phoenix, and Tulsa.

Cancer Centers of America, with five locations throughout the US, specializes in treating adults undergoing cancer treatment. Their advanced multi-prong approach to cancer treatment includes genomic testing, surgery, and immunotherapy, among others.

Cancer Centers of America offers not just medical support, but also emotional support to cancer patients and their families and consistently rank in the top percentage of patient approval and satisfaction surveys. They offer supportive proven therapies to allow patients to maintain a quality of life and manage difficult side effects which continue post-treatment. They have “a passion to care.”

Larkin and Lacey Frontera Group is Changing Lives

Every day in the world, the basic rights of people who are vulnerable in the society are violated. There are several groups of people who cannot live a good life just because they have a different race, religion or any other factor.

Immigrants, for instance, are sometimes deported without getting a reliable court hearing just because they come from a different nation.

These individuals are mostly discriminated, and they are given some unlawful judgments. There are several groups, however, that are working hard to change the lives of these people.

Human rights groups are very important in the society. The organizations are established by powerful human activists who want to transform the society and make it the best place for everyone to live.

Most of the human rights institutions are non-profit making, and they receive most of their funding from well-wishers who share similar dreams. The groups mostly advocate for the rights of immigrants and any other vulnerable individual in the society.

The Larkin and Lacey Frontera Fund is currently one of these important organizations in the United States. The institution was established several years ago, and it has done a lot to help other human rights groups in the US and other parts of the world. The institution has been powerful, and it has served as a voice to many people who have been judged unlawfully.

The Larkin and Lacey Frontera Fund was started by two individuals who had gone through some injustices. Michael and Jim are two journalists who are based in the United States. Several years ago, Michael and Jim were arrested unlawfully and a Sheriff in Maricopa County.

Due to this arrest, the journalists were forced to stay in jail for some time, and they decided to sue the county. Fortunately, the duo won the case after more than ten years, and they were given some compensation. The judge found that the journalists were unlawfully arrested.

After receiving the compensation, the journalists decided that they were not going to use the money for their gains. According to the duo, there were millions of people in the country who were experiencing difficulties in prisons just because they were being detained unlawfully.

The money gained was used to start the Larkin and Lacey Frontera Fund so that it could assist other human rights organizations in the United States.

Just recently, the DACA program was under a lot of pressure from powerful forces in the nation. The program focuses on helping the young immigrants who are looking for greener pastures in the US. Read more: Phoenix New Times | Wikipedia and Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund

When the young individuals arrive in the country, the DACA program ensures that they are given a driving license and a working permit. The work permit from the institution is renewed after every two years.

The Frontera Fund has done its best to make sure that the DACA program is not abolished. The founders of the institution say that the young people will suffer greatly at the end of the day. The fund has received support from many groups too.

Jason Hope: Internet In The Classroom

Do you remember when the internet was used basically for looking things up like definitions or maps? It has become much more useful in the past few years. It is now possible to do just about anything you can think of on the internet. Almost all electronic devices are now called “smart” devices. Most people would never leave their home without their smartphone or their smart wearable devices. It is not uncommon to see a group of people at an event all staring at their smartphones. Anyone can be a photographer or a videographer with today’s devices.

In a recent article on entrepreneur Jason Hope describes how schools and colleges are now using the internet and smart devices as a tool to give kids and young adults experiences they would otherwise not be able to have. He explains how wearable virtual reality goggles can allow students to walk through a rainforest or see a heart beating in someone’s chest. This brings new meaning to learning and training on specific subjects.

Jason Hope is an entrepreneur who received his degree in finance from Arizona State University and an MBA from ASU’s W.P. Carey School of Business. Jason Hope has a passion for technology and has devoted his life to helping others using new technology. He is also a philanthropist. In December of 2010, Jason Hope donated $500,000 to the SENS foundation. The SENS Foundation is devoted to helping with age-related diseases. For more information about the SENS foundation please visit https://angel.co/jason-hope.

Technology can also be useful in schools for the staff. There may be devices that could make life a little easier for them. They at be able to take role, help a teacher or professor who has many students to identify when a student needs a little bit of extra attention and help. We are already seeing smart dry erase boards equipped with all the bells and whistles. The internet will eventually have a hand in almost everything we do and will make life easier for everyone. From the time you wake up to the time you go to bed, you will use some form of internet or smart device.
